While I am all for money being spent on the arts, sometimes I wish they would spend this kind of money on programming and artistic support (ie commisioning new works, supporting the artists directly) rather than on construction projects. The last time I was at Lincoln Center, it didn't really seem like it was "deteriorating". When it was built, (early 60's)it was the most expensive arts construction ever....no expense was spared....Italian marble, the best architects commissioned (Philp Johnson or Eero Saarinen, I can't remember which). The big snafu seems to be different groups having to share the same theatres-ie. New York City Opera and New York City Ballet share State Theatre, Avery Fisher Hall shared by Philharmonic and various musical venues.Is this new project going to build more theatres in the same location; it doesn't seem like there's enough room to wedge in more theatres, unless you eliminate the beautiful fountain and park areas (Damrosch Park, outdoor bandshell arena)adjacent to theatres. Anybody know the "scoop".

Nightly, it stages a meta-performance by artists, audiences and the physical settings that allow contact between them in public space.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2001/01/21/arts/21MUSC.html" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE</B></A><P><BR>

Oh dear...this does not look good. First Broadway hits a post-tragedy slump, with shows closing right and left, and others having their openings delayed or cancelled. Now this. What will happen to New York's reign as a cultural mecca...hmmmmmmmmmmmmm?
